Pan-fried cavolo nero, salami and borlotti beans


This is perfect as a side to roast chicken but also hearty enough to enjoy as a meal in its own right. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

200 gm dried borlotti beans, soaked overnight in cold water 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 80 gm piece of Italian salami, cut into 1cm pieces 1 small dried red chilli, finely chopped 200 gm young cavolo nero

Method

  • 01
  • Drain borlotti beans, place in a saucepan, cover with cold water, bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until tender (45-50 minutes). Drain, set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add garlic and sauté until golden (2-3 minutes). Add salami and chilli, sauté until salami colours (3-4 minutes), add cavolo nero and cook until wilted (3-4 minutes). Toss through beans, season to taste and serve immediately.
